Dear Diary,

I called Betty Lou this morning, and she said that the short subject at the Rialto while I was at the farm was the “Hedda Hopper’s Hollywood” short subject that had Bob Hope’s radio program for April 28 in it. That’s the second time I’ve missed something about him recently. The third, and worst, came tonight after I got home from the show (and what a lousy show). I picked up the paper and read that two hours earlier Bob had been on a radio program called “Soldiers With Wings” with Jerry Colonna and various other Hope companions An he even sang a song! Oh, woe is me! My luck is getting awful.

Dear Diary,

Betty Lou joined our Sunday School class today. After lunch, we went to the Rialto to see an old picture that had been brought back to the screen. It was “Navy Blue and Gold,” and after seeing it, I know why they brought it back. All it needed to be perfect was Bob Hope, but that’s true about almost all pictures. Anyway, it was plenty good.

Dear Diary,

I went to the Rialto today to see “They Met In Argentina.” There was a short called “Screen Snapshots.” I didn’t expect to see Bob Hope in it, but the whole thing was a party at the Pirate’s Den and Bob Hope was the master of ceremonies! He told the gag about the man who told his sweetheart he was color blind, and she said, “Yo sho’ are, boss.” It’s not original, but it was twice as funny the way Bob told it.
